    I would also like to thank Hal for his tremendous contributions, not just to Canadian chess, but also to FIDE. I've been blessed with some chess travel in my life, and it's so impressive how widely...

    I agree.

    In addition, I cringe to mention this, but it seems we should also think about another scenario, where anti-vax-ness lands us in a situation where, ironically, while many people are...

    I'm not sure about the English Chess Federation, but the USCF has an Ethics Commitee, and FIDE has an Ethics Commission. I would also be horrified if it were to be "wielded", fundamentally because an...

    I would think that a CFC Ethics Commission (or Committee or whatever) would be a good thing. I guess the next step is for someone to offer to propose it, etc.

    Yes, we'll need to settle on something that everyone is comfortable with. I understand the allure of the idea of hybrid, but in my judgement, if the pandemic is bad enough that we can't have OTB,...

    Thank you Anna for continuing to provide your input!

    I think it's imperative we listen to people like Anna who have done this, observed this, etc. more than most of us have in Canada. From my...

    I'm not sure I understand. At this point, I'm thinking the top 10 players in the country, battling it out old-school full-time-control round-robin for the World Cup spot. I don't know how many of...

    Michael, I don't know for sure yet, but if we do hold some kind of hybrid format to determine Canadian representatives, I would expect there would be certain costs associated with Online Arbiters...

    Yes, also cross-posting my reply (and this seems like the more appropriate thread):

    Thanks, let's keep talking.

    Thanks, let's keep talking.

    I've already taken the "liberty" of contacting three online platforms, explaining the situation, asking what they can offer us, subject to meeting FIDE regulations.

    At this point, my intuitive reaction is that it would be "easier" if the pandemic has subsided to the point of enabling return to over-the-board. However, the sheer math so far seems challenging. For...

    Thank you Vadim. And of course, please keep us posted. We might have to consider some kind of heavily Arbiter-ed hybrid model to select our representatives.

    So my observations while working online across much of the Western hemisphere is that different jurisdictions are deriving different Fair Play approaches. I was asked about that recently at...

    Thank you Egis! Hal and I have been considering this for a while. We thought of Pierre given his experience with the FQE program / Quebec representation / etc.

    I feel that most of the ideas presented in just these posts are worth folding into a greater initiative that includes both Organizational and Arbiter-ing angles.

    However, for years now, we seem to...

    If the CFC is interested in Tornelo, I can connect, get info, etc. Lemme know what we're looking for.

    And/or identify a CFC prime to continue such a conversation.
